ive been to costa rica on 3 seperate trips....
when i return...im looking for a more adventurous way to travel between arenal and monteverde...
that is to skip traveling around the lake by car to tiliaran.... and take a more direct route...from the south side of the lake by the observatory el castillo area to the northern most point of santa elena cloud forest area....be it by horse or by foot.
i know that many of you will say this is stupid....but i want the adventure...and i want the expertise of those who either live in those areas or have actually trekked that way.
on google earth, i see there is a break in the northern most road of santa elena and el castillo on the south side of the lake..
..but are there less remote paths between those roads for horse or travel by foot??
.....its literally only 2 miles from "rancho margot" in el castillo to a mapped road leading to santa elena cloud forest reserve
rio cano negro basically close to that route into santa elena
